RIP Hennessey

Dear marc. 


I am sad to see what happened with the statute that was passed.  You and your wife's work changed our lives. 


Hennessey has gone over the rainbow bridge. We had to finally make the choice to release him from this world as he was suffering. He had lost about forty pounds, there were times he was unable to stand up and we in pain.  We will forever have him in our hearts and you for connecting us with him. It's been over a week and Darrell still cries whenever he thinks of losing his buddy. 


Hopefully Cecily is happy with you. Knowing we made the right choice for our sons doesn't make the heart miss her less. 


I hope you find a good plan for your life's work.

Darrell and I wanted to send you a couple of pictures of our wonderful friend, Hennessey. Our lives are better for having him. He is wonderful, obedient, loving and a wonderful source of entertainment when he is playing. It is fun to watch people's expressions when we are out for our nightly walks. We have had people stop and back up there cars to ask us questions and give compliments. (He sure hates the veterinarian though!!!) We couldn't have found a better companion. Words cannot express the appreciation that we have for the work that you do.

We just got Hennessy out of an abusive situation. He is being evaluated now, but he seems to be a sweet, loving dog, very affectionate and well behaved. He is well trained. He really wants to please and will make someone a devoted loving pet. He gets along well with other dogs though he can be protective of his food and toys sometimes. We will be updating his info as soon as we have had some time with him.
